Nfu Oh #52 - swatches and review

Today I want to show you a successful combination of two polishes:
Nfu Oh #52 and Illamasqua Phallic!
Nfu Oh #52 is a green/blue flake polish and Phallic is a midnight blue shimmer polish. More swatches and a review of Phallic can be found here.
Look how nice they go together! :D A match made in heaven! ;)

GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Flake.

Colour: The flakes go from dark green to medium blue and sometimes to turquoise depeding on the lighting. The flakes lie in a blurple (a purple-ish blue) thin base.

Opacity: Hard to say since I'm layering it, but I've read that it's possible to get it opaque on its own. This is one coat over two coats of Phallic.

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Very good! Quite thick, but still surprisingly easy to work with. Stays where you want it to.

Brush: Good! Nice and thick! Almost too thick for the smaller nails ;) but still very easy to apply with.

Shine: Very shiny on its own, but I have two coats of Seche Vite in these pictures. You don't really need any top coat, but I'm working a long shift as a florist today and I need all the protection I can get! ;)

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate! Better looking IRL of course! ;) It has a real depth and an almost metallic shine which don't really show off in the pictures.

Grade: 5/5 :D

I got this polish through a swap with Sleeping Elin and I'm very pleased with it! :D
It reminds me of mermaids some how ;) Next time I'll try it over a dark green polish I think.

Do you like flake polishes?
Over what polish would you layer this over?
